Welcome to my site archives. 10 posts are listed per page.
On the other news fronts . . . Gundam Seed, box set 1 comes out this week which is cool. Many a person had been waiting for that one, so I'm glad to tell them that that's finally out. The second part should come out early March.
Bought the Queens of the Stone Age song pack for Rock Band . . . enjoying that . . . still pissed off about how Harmonix and Activision (Guitar Hero's new company) are pissed at each other . . . the only ones hurt by their spat are us, y'know.
I've decided that before Sakura-Con I wanna make a Nathan Drake (from "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune") cosplay. It'll be kinda cheap to make (dirty grey shirt and jeans with a pistol shoulder holster), but it'd be fun to walk around like that. Just gotta go look for some leather and learn how to make stuff with it . . . here, have a reference picture:
I just got to about halfway in "The Golden Compass". Still enjoying it quite a lot. Mostly now I'm just debating whether I need to reread "The Subtle Knife" next (since I read it a couple years back for a class) or if I'll be fresh enough to go straight to book 3. Somethin' to think about.
Am I done? I'm done. I shall finish with Bif's cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters":
Gay internet porn? Again? Really guys?
Y'know what? I think this week I shall have to write and post a "Caption Battle Suggestion List/Guide" on Wednesday. Further, I shall have a link to this list/guide in every caption battle post for the rest of time.
Things to touch on, in example:
-Writing a caption that pretty much says the exact same thing as another caption that's come before yours is rarely worth writing.
-Yaoi, while potentially funny, is not inherently funny.
-Using common sense when it comes to language and such - as funny as hearing "cock-knocker" is, it'll never win a caption battle.
-Long, extensive dialogues rarely win; they can, but they'd better be damn good.
-Follow-up to the last one: you're given a picture, a single flash moment in time. Writing about actions beyond that moment in time is a story inspired by the picture; it's no longer a caption.
Stuff like that. I'll admit, this inspiration from this came from www.supermanhomepage.com ("Remember, only YOU can prevent bad One More Day jokes, and knowing is half the battle"). They also mention taking the week's judge's tastes into consideration as well . . . I'm iffy on bringing that one up, but yeah.
That done . . . I've got The Golden Compass to read and a lion dance to perform in Chinatown at noon today. They may or may not make me be the head which scares me (my lion head abilities aren't quite as confident as my cymbaling abilities, that's for sure!). Here's hoping I don't sleep in this morning . . .
Have I mentioned that Bluetooth headsets are fun as all hell? I rarely have to use it (basically it's just so I can hands-free my cell phone while I drive), but it's just nifty.
To wrap up today's post . . . my job-finding sooner-than-later priorities are hilarious.
1. I've missed my past 3 dentist check-ups. I miss having a dental plan . . .
2. I wanna have steady work so I can plan for time off for conventions.
I suppose "move out by this year" is in there as well . . . but that's less of a priority. Funny, huh? Comments (8) |

Here's the drummer I created in Rock Band.
If you don't get it, you need to watch more Gundam Seed.
EDIT: Maris'! Your package arrived today! And holy crap, I'm basically floored - Volume 1 of the Heroes Graphic Novel in hard cover and a hip flask . . . hehe, methinks mine reputation doth precede me.
You seriously went way out . . . consider me completely dumbstruck. Thanks beautiful, I love it all. Comments (4) |

I never did a post-Christmas post!!!
Stuff I got:
-Assorted clothes: socks, underwear, shirts, pants . . .
-Winter jacket of less suck than my current one
-Box of Everlasting Gobstoppers
-Bit of money
-World in Conflict for PC, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune for PS3
-Medium-tension Gripmaster grip strengthener
-Bunch of random old martial arts movies
-Box set of "Black Books" DVDs
-G1 Transformers calendar
-Assorted money-type stuff.
Oh, and a Superman tree ornament (thanks again, Red!).
So about Rock Band . . .
Yes, it's still eating my life. Not my fault, it's got a great song list. Among many, there are:
-Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult (with loading screens telling you that "Gene Frenkle is fictional")
-Enter Sandman by Metallica
-Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi (if anyone's seen the Triumph Insult Comic Dog thing where he roasted Bon Jovi, this was the song he analyzed with the "on a steel horse I ride" line)
-Tom Sawyer by Rush (it's a long song)
-Here it Goes Again by OK Go (the Treadmill song!)
-Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who (CSI: Miami song!!!)
Drums are hard. Mad props to you, Mr. East. Don't know how ya do it . . .
In other news, I'm doin' alright. Wondering what I need to do for New Year's, though . . . Comments (9) |
